Summertime Tuna

OK its not quite Summer yet but it is really close, anyway those flavors that I love came together as a chunky relish to go with a fresh grilled tuna steak. I simply char grilled fresh corn and Roma tomatoes and combined them with shelled fava beans with a healthy amount of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lime. The thick tuna steaks were seasoned with a rub of fennel seeds, kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper, drizzled with olive oil and cooked rare on a hot grill, wow was it good, perfect for a weekend evening. Note: Fresh Fava beans can be found at good or farmers markets for a limited time and are labor intensive in preparing.
